Lookback Law In New York Could Bring Bill Cosby Back To Court

According to CNN, the five women who filed the lawsuit are Lili Bernard (pictured above), Eden Tirl, Jewel Gittens, Jennifer Thompson, and Cindra Ladd. The publication notes that at one point, Bernard, Tirl, and Gittens all starred on “The Cosby Show.” Variety reports that Ladd is a former entertainment executive. Their 34-page lawsuit states (via CNN) that “Each plaintiff was sexually assaulted and battered by defendant Bill Cosby in the same or similar manner when he used his power, fame, and prestige, including the power, fame and prestige given to him by [the] defendants … to misuse his enormous power in such a nefarious, horrific way.”

Per the Los Angeles Times, the women are accusing Cosby of drugging them with an “intoxicant” and assaulting them. Moreover, CNN writes that several media companies associated with “The Cosby Show,” such as NBCUniversal and Kaufman-Astoria, are also listed as defendants in the case. The lawsuit alleges (via the Los Angeles Times) that these companies “should have known that Bill Cosby was a danger to women” and that they “bestowed upon Bill Cosby power or the appearance of power … to access and sexually abuse women.” Nearly every woman in the suit previously spoke out about being assaulted by Cosby.
